101w ago - Electronic Arts Community Coordinator Eduardo Vasconcellos has made available some video footage today from E3 2011 showcasing Battlefield 3 for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.
To quote: DICE's Battlefield 3 had an incredible showing at last week's E3, racking up over 30 award nominations. But for many shooter fans, one question remained -- "Where's the console version?"
Well, tonight those questions are answered as DICE's own Johan Dohl stops by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to give Jimmy the first hands on with Battlefield 3 for PS3.
Be sure to set those TIVO's, and for more information on Battlefield 3 be sure to watch our interview with Patrick Bach, Executive Producer on Battlefield 3 below.
One more thing! If you missed the news at PlayStation's E3 2011 Press Conference, the PS3 version of Battlefield 3 will include the full version of Battlefield 1943 on the Blu-ray disc -- an exclusive bonus just for PS3 owners.
109w ago - EA Community Lead Paul Keslin has released a new Battlefield 3 Fault Line PS3 trailer today!
To quote: Watch 12 minutes of gameplay from Battlefield 3 in our full Fault Line reveal, featuring never before shown footage.
Battlefield 3 leaps ahead of its time with the power of Frostbite 2, the next instalment of DICE's cutting-edge game engine.
This state-of-the-art technology is the foundation on which Battlefield 3 is built, delivering enhanced visual quality, a grand sense of scale, massive destruction, dynamic audio and incredibly lifelike character animations.
As bullets whiz by, walls crumble, and explosions throw you to the ground, the battlefield feels more alive and interactive than ever before.
In Battlefield 3, players step into the role of the elite U.S. Marines where they will experience heart-pounding missions across diverse locations including Paris, Tehran and New York.
128w ago - Electronic Arts Community Coordinator Eduardo Vasconcellos has shared a video today spotlighting Battlefield: Bad Company 2 - Vietnam The Battle for Hastings on the PS3 entertainment system.
To quote: On December 21, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam will arrive on the PlayStation 3 with the low, low cost of $14.99, adding some great new gameplay to an already fantastic shooter.
You may already know that this expansion comes with new weapons, new vehicles, and four new maps, but what you may not know is that one of the most popular maps from 2004's Battlefield: Vietnam will also be included in the bundle.
The fifth map, Operation Hastings, will add a new avenue for PlayStation gamers to show their superiority on the Battlefield featuring everything that makes BFBC2 Vietnam amazing: tanks, Jeeps, temples, boats and helicopters all in an environment featuring a distinctive bridge that separates the map into two main areas. Though, it's not as easy as all that. It's entirely up to you to unlock this fifth map.
To unlock Operation Hastings, we've decided to start up a new community challenge for all of our fans dubbed The Battle for Hastings. To unlock Operation Hastings,...
142w ago - Today DICE Jr. Product Manager Tommy Rydling has officially announced that Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Ultimate Edition is out for Sony's PS3 entertainment system.
To quote: You get a ton of stuff in Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Ultimate Edition, with Onslaught Mode, Limited Edition Unlocks and the full version of Battlefield 1943 -- DICE's PSN WWII shooter from the summer of 2009, now making its first appearance in retail stores.
As you may or may not remember, when Battlefield 1943 first launched, DICE ran the Coral Sea Challenge. As soon as the gamers on PS3 reached 43 million kills collectively, a fourth map would unlock.
For a latecomer to the party, it's still a blast to soar through the skies on the Coral Sea bonus map, even though I missed out on contributing in the challenge.
Back to the beautiful Pacific in Battlefield 1943.
Back then, it took the PS3 gamers only eight days to reach the 43 million kill limit! Which got me wondering: What has happened since then in the Battlefield universe, numbers-wise? So I dove into the official PS3 stats for Bad Company 2 (released only six months ago) and came back with the following impressive figures:
150w ago - Today Dice Community Manager Daniel Matros has announced alongside a video that the Battlefield Bad Company 2: Onslaught Mode for PlayStation 3 is now deployed.
To quote: As you may or may not know, we just released Onslaught mode for Battlefield: Bad Company 2. Just wanted to give you some more info on what you can expect in this new co-op experience.
Onslaught is co-op in the sense that you get to play with a squad of up to four soldiers against endless waves of A.I. enemies. Endless until you take the base flags, that is. The people who are actually doing the Onslaught are you -- the players.
Atacama Desert is a real favorite among Battlefield players. In Onslaught, this huge, vehicle-heavy map is ravaged by minor sandstorms that give it a limited visibility.
This makes Onslaught approachable on two totally different levels. First, it is the perfect place for newcomers to hone their squad tactics without having to face human opposition. On easy or normal difficulty, this should be very manageable by a team of four soldiers playing together. As long as one of you stays alive at all times, the others can keep spawning in.
For the elite squads out there, crank up the difficulty...
